Background and theme[edit]

Recorded in New York City, produced by Tim Ries and Magos Herrera, Mexico Azul shares a contemporary view of issues such as "Noche criolla" and "Azul" by Agustín Lara, "Luz de Luna" by Álvaro Carrillo and "Dos Gardenias" Isolde Carrillo, among others, accompanied by a first class band with great musicians like the bassist John Patitucci, representing once again, the Mexican jazz in the world.[1]

Magos Herrera pays homage with this album to one of the most remembered in Mexico in the 1930s and '40s, which took place in the Golden Age of Mexican cinema and on the television program La Hora Azul (The Blue Hour), with Agustín Lara.

The material also pays tribute to artists from Puerto Rico and Cuba, who developed their careers in Mexico.

"I'm very happy with this material because it shows that I am given to jazz, that I love to give continuity to my career here in Mexico. The word 'blue' has a connotation interesting because it is depth, which drew my attention. "

The singer also said that this album represents, within the bicentennial and centennial celebrations in Mexico.

"It's important to celebrate, and that is why this disc is attached to the celebrations that are very important to Mexicans", he said.[2]
